.dcdef file deleted and checked in.

Dear All,

I am facing a problem in NWDI while creating a Dc project from the Track.As part of Support pack upgrade, I have done some conflict resolution to the existing Dc.I found that the .dcdef file also shows conflict.I have manually check out the .dcdef file and created an activity. But by mistake , I have deleted the .dcdef file and done the check in and activate it.

Now when i try to sync and re-create the project i am getting the below error "

Error when reading component definition from repository:

Could not get component definition file from remote server. Not found

" and i am not able to create the Dc's again in my workspace.

When i go to the CBS UI link , I cannot see the respective Dc's under the SoftwareComponents under inactive section.

Can you please help me on this.How can i bring back the Dc's under the inactive section for the Sc.So that i can again create a project and do my developments.

    Hello Subrat,

    did Zsolt's suggestion helped to you?

    As I can see pretty much the same issue has been raised at

    and there the resolution was the same what has been suggested here as well by Zsolt.

    Thank you and Regards,

    Dear Subrat,

    try to find the old version of the respective .dcdef file in DTR webUI. There must be a button to access the older versions of the containing folder.

    If you can find this file, than there might be a method to manually add this file to DTR again.

    If not, then the brute-force method would be to recreate the DC from scratch with the exact parameters from the .dcdef file and check in just the .dcdef file in the proper folder.

    Best Regards,
